The most beautiful cities in the world have bridges, from which you can look out over the city, and gain a perspective of the sparkly urban fabric reflected in the water that has shaped it. Vancouver is no exception. The Lion's Gate, built in 1938, is an elegant suspension bridge that connects the downtown and Stanley Park to the North Shore communities and mountains beyond.
